Vancouver Canada 1995
Coming up for air. Seconds after being born at the Vancouver Aquarium, a baby beluga whale heads for the surface to draw breath. The healthy calf was named Qila and weighed in at just over 100 pounds. Only two dozen belugas have ever been born in captivity. After a few years they lose their gray pigmentation - hence their other name: the white whale.

Formula-one driver Alexander Wurz crashes his car during the Canadian Grand Pri. Four drivers were involved in a pile-up soon after the start, as all tried to go into a corner together. Wurz collided with French driver Jean Alesi and was launched into a roll. He continued the race in a spare vehicle and went on to come fourth, with Michael Schumacher taking first place.

Quebec Canada 2003
After four years at sea, massive wild Atlantic salmon return to one of the few remaining healthy rivers in Eastern Canada. As wild Atlantic salmon populations falter, salmon farming is on the increase globally, with over 274 million farmed fish present in the world's waters. Pound for pound, more pesticides and antibiotics are used than in any other livestock industry, having an impact on both human health and the environment.

Yukon Canada 2004
Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) appears over Coal Lake. Solar particles emitted during large explosions and flares on the sun's surface, collide with gases in the Earth's atmosphere. The energy resulting from the interaction between this 'solar wind' (as it is known) and molecules in the atmosphere is emitted in the form of photons - and many such individual collisions appear to make the aurora move across the sky, creating a spectacular natural light display.
